Weekend Was Tough

Monday, April 08, 2013

Saturday, I wanted to eat a house and feel like I did, and Sunday I ate fried chicken. And a yeast roll. And rice with gravy. Should I continue? Probably not, just suffice it to say I strayed. Backtracking and back tracking today but this is going to be a bad week. Wednesday and Thursday I will be at the hospital with Mom getting her pacemaker, finally-TG! - and Friday I will be on an audit. Anyway, I'm doing the best I can and I got in an afternoon of yardwork Saturday with lots of help from Bitsee and Peanut.

    I think we all have weeks where we decide to sit on the side of the healthy lifestyle road. Sometimes we even head backward over territory we've already covered. It's OK. You WILL hit a less stressful week and get yourself pointed in the right direction. Be gentle with yourself right now while you've got so much going on!

    Challenges like this are really hard, Lynn. Just do the best you can and let it go. It is good for us to prepare as much as possible, but sometimes we just have to go with the flow, too. Good luck to your Mom and also to you with the audit! Keep up the great is paying off for you, that I know!! Hugs, Jeannie

    You can only do the best you can under the circumstances. When I have weekends or weeks like that, I try to look at how much BETTER it is NOW than it once would have been. Maybe you ate the chicken and the yeast roll - but MAYBE you ate LESS chicken and/or only one yeast roll. Look at the ways you have made progress rather than the fact you had a rough weekend. I would bet that there have been other weekends that were MUCH worse.

This week, take CARE of yourself and be gentle - the stress and worry are TOUGH - make a plan to HELP you do the best you can. Don't beat yourself up if you find yourself challenged and you CHOOSE to eat something you wouldn't normally eat. Will pray for your mom and for you this week.

    Lynn, sometimes it's very difficult to stay on track and you derail. But the next day or so, you're "all aboard" again, and you do better than the "little engine that could".
Hang in there girl, Maybe we'll meet on the next train and travel this route together.

you got it right!
A place to "say it like it is" and write out our frustrations.....
and all we get back is encouragement not "directions on how to change."

Now LYNN,,,, don't beat yourself up! just do what you can... :)

    For me, the beauty of this site is the lack of judgment. I don't always do as good as I should (and know I could), yet not once has anyone chastised me for not doing it "right" or for gaining some weight back. This fact alone has permitted me a freedom I never experienced with any program I was paying for...AND I've quit judging myself as well. Talk about freedom!!

I think perfection is highly overrated!
